At the very northern tip of West Virginia, Kennedy Marina & Campground has a generally nice setting (no shade at all, though), a lot of Canada geese were hanging around, and we got a nice grass site right by the river. Most of the other campers -- workers and seasonal, probably -- didn't have it as good, with many of them close together and at least half probably couldn't see the river. We have a tiny motorhome but tow a car, so it's always nice to get a pull-through (esp. for a 1-nighter) so we didn't have to disconnect the car. Our one night stay was very nice, with a view of the river and the trees and hillside of Ohio on the other side. Hookups were good and though we had to share water with another site, it was not a problem. WiFi was too weak to be useful, but we got a good Verizon 4G signal for our MiFi. The bathroom and laundry were dated, but mostly clean; the bathroom did not have a shower. They are closed on Monday, but we called and they came fairly quick and were very plesant. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall a nice park with friendly owners and fellow campers. Sites along the river in the above section were great. I loved looking out over the river and watching the barges. Sites are fairly tight and the Wi-Fi was non-existent. Therefore the reason for an 8. Our rig is 40' long. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopped here for a couple of days while at mountaineer race track just down the road. Stayed right on the river so had a lovely view with geese every morning. Everything worked well, the management was beyond nice and helpful. I got really lost on the way in and she stayed on the phone the entire time to get me to the park. Perfect location for mountaineer. Good verizon cell. Everything worked. If you have a boat you are right there too. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay at this quiet out of the way campground. They offer a boat launch and a fishing pier right on the Ohio River. The bathrooms and shower houses are the cleanest and best kept I've ever seen at a campground. The owners are very friendly and willing to help with anything they can. Most of the campers here are seasonal renters who come on weekends to enjoy the river. We camped here for 2 months while working at a nearby power plant. I was working night shift and had absolutely no problem with noise of any type during the day. My wife says it was the same during the night while I was gone. We will definitely stay here again. The rate above is the daily rate, we were charged $550 per month, including all utilities. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
